At the age of 30, a Texas man who led a group of “Freedom Defenders” against mask laws died of COVID-19.
The Standard-Times stated that Caleb Wallace helped organize “The Freedom Rally” on July 4, 2020, which was characterized in a brochure as a nonviolent demonstration by those “sick of the government being in control of our lives.”
Jessica revealed her husband’s death on a GoFundMe page detailing his battle with COVID-19 during the previous few weeks.
The San Angelo Standard-Times stated that Wallace had been unconscious since August 8.
Jessica Wallace said her husband became ill in late July but was “very hard-headed.”
Wallace’s wife stated she didn’t always agree with her husband’s views and that she wears a mask.
Wallace leaves behind three children and a pregnant wife.
